Re: how to deselect 3G and keeping the smartphone connected to the network,

• deselecting G feature: to disable G mode when I need to save battery power & Line fees.
• choosing “Data Services off” results BB transferring no data from Wifi connection.

• if not getting mentioned points, ill try to find another way.

Ok, I understand that. Go to 2G, which is EDGE speed. "G" really doesn't meany anything anyway, it's just a generic marketing term

Correct, that's the way it works. You must have Data Services enabled ON for data to flow from either WiFi or mobile network.

Re: how to deselect 3G and keeping the smartphone connected to the network,

Thanks but, as a conclusion saving battery power stays inachievable or else Data flow gets disconnected; right?
